My System Specs


I had a similar problem a few months back and used this free tool from Norton/Symantec to remove it.
Norton Rescue Tools

Hope this helps such a pain to lose all your data.

i follow a system like this myself. Always boot up safemode and check msconfig and just general running proccesses (and delete and turn off all system restore points). Then i run a scan of Malwarebytes followed by SAS (restarting in between), if its not dead run kasperky rescue cd and UBCD4WIN (havnt checked out avira's, just might), then resort to combofix last only because its a pretty heavy program. If my pc is still infected, I would likely nuke it (albiet i havnt come to that worst case just yet)

Congrats on the virus fix though. Consider running CCleaners reg cleaner and maybe Rougekiller to see if any part of the registry is severely affected.
